  • The Nov. 4 general election in Jamestown might go out with a bang.
     
    Fireworks continue to be a hot topic in the city, a month after the Fourth of July holiday. The debate about how many days residents should be allowed to shoot off fireworks might now end up before voters in three months.
     
    Fireworks are allowed in Jamestown from June 27 through July 5. Resident Danielle Schmidt last month asked the City Council to reduce the time period, saying nine days is excessive. The idea fizzled out late last month when a five-day proposal failed on a 2-2 city committee vote, with one member absent.
     
    KQDJ radio reports that the council has now scheduled an Aug. 19 special meeting to discuss a possible ballot measure to let voters decide.
